Erase the difference

sign the petition
Join CMHA in the call to erase the difference.
For decades, mental health and addictions services in communities throughout Ontario have been chronically underfunded compared to other parts of the health system. The result: it’s impossible to meet the needs of Ontarians. Wait times are up. Programs have been cut. People are falling through the cracks.
But we’re on the cusp of something big. For the first time in a long time, there’s widespread acceptance about the urgent need for quality mental health and addiction services. The federal government is providing an unprecedented amount of money for mental health and addictions services. And with the provincial election coming this spring, Ontario’s three main political parties all believe it’s a key issue.
Now is the time for all Ontarians who have been touched by mental health or addictions issues to make their voice heard. Join us in letting provincial candidates know that it’s time to #erasethedifference and fund mental health and addictions care the same as physical health care. 
Visit erasethedifference.ca and sign the petition. Then ask three friends to do the same.
With your help, we can send a strong message ahead of Ontario's June 7, 2018 election.

World Suicide Prevention Day

WSPD17 Web banner

CMHA commemorates World Suicide Prevention Day

Each small moment can add up to make a big difference.

That's the message individuals, organizations, policy makers and advocates are sharing this year to commemorate World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) on September 10.

The Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (CASP) estimates that each day in Canada, 11 people end their life and 210 make a suicide attempt. Suicide occurs across all age, economic, social, and ethnic boundaries. The tragedy of suicide impacts the entire community.

Raising awareness opens doors to help, hope and healing. CASP is encouraging Canadians to participate in WSPD and take a minute to:

• Wear a suicide prevention ribbon

• Speak up and share the message on social media that help is available

• Reach out to a friend or family member who may be struggling and ask them if they want to talk


CMHA Champlain East offers Livingworks certified trainings, for more information click here.

Though not all suicides can be prevented, some strategies can help reduce the risk, such as:

• Seeking treatment, care and support for mental health concerns — and building a good relationship with a doctor or other health professionals

• Staying connected with a care team or community-based program to help manage stress and monitor for thoughts of suicide

• Building social support networks, such as family, friends, a peer support or support group, or connections with a cultural or faith community

• Learning good coping skills to deal with problems, and trusting in coping abilities


Universal prevention strategies recommended by the World Health Organization also include increasing access to health care and responsible media reporting.
